Oven light receptacle broken - bulb base broke off

  • 20 of 24 people found this instruction helpful
Turned power off at electrical panel. Pulled oven away from wall. Removed back cover (6 screws), then unplugged wires from old receptacle. I had to pull the squeeze clips backwards & break them to remove the old receptacle - couldn't squeeze them enough to remove them otherwise. The old receptacle came out through the inside of the oven, and the new one snapped in easily from inside the oven as well. Replaced wiring, installed new bulb, restored power & tested. Replaced back cover. Good time to vacuum under/behind where the oven usually lives before sliding it back to the wall.

Stack using washers provided. Take note of colors before disassembly. Use caution while working through access opening. The edges are sharp. Only tools needed are phillips screwdriver, deep socket for lug nuts. Nut driver optional. Hope this is helpful.

No heat when turning oven on.

Started by replacing element which was clearly broken. Still no heat. So then I changed the oven sensor. Was disappointed that when I received the sensor I had to cut and splice the connector that was on it with the old one that came off the old sensor. Did that and still no heat so I had to buy a new clock/timer. Went to another store for that because of the connector not being the right type and there was no picture of the clock/timer like the other website. Overall ok, normall troubleshooting steps, just wish I didn't have to cut and splice the connector on the new sensor I purchased from here.

Sensor very accessible. Pull off the back panel, disconect the sensor and slide out from back of oven. The original plug was cut off the sensor, as well as the new one to get the proper connector type on the new sensor. Soldered and heat shrink, and presto we had our new sensor ready for install. Install was about 5 minutes which included putting the back panel on the range. Pretty easy and works like new. Total time for project was about 20 minutes.

minimal/no heat

turned off main power; took a flash light, unscrewed existing element and disconnected it from the wiring; compared existing with new elements as the shipping label said "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING MAY BE RETURNED IF IT APPEARS THAT IT HAS BEEN INSTALLED"; it appeared to be close enough but not exact. Connected wiring to new element, shoved it back into the insultation, screwed in the element with the same screws. Viola' all worked as it should. I even set my oven on the "self clean" cycle which is 3 hours on high. Overall it was very easy.

We removed the old part and replaced it then when warming the oven all of a sudden there was a loud noise and something went and so we called a repair man which I guess we should of done in the first place. Now he has ordered a part that cost 170 soo that is my story don't try to repair if you don't have experience.

Not heating up properly.

  • Customer: Jim from Kennett square PA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

What a job. Definitely should have two people do this. First, the part provided was not an exact match. I thought I was buying the same part as original. When I found it was different, there was a note that said the part may not be exact. This being said, I had to remove the wall ovens from the wall- very heavy , then had to take the back plate off, splice the wires to make the part work and then lift it up and put it back in. Next problem, its all hooked up, but still doesn't heat up correctly. Leave this to the pros.

replaced the burned out bake element in my wall oven

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 2 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
first, I watched the video that partselect provides, then followed the instuctions that I learned from the video, I turned off the power to the appliance, removed the oven racks, removed the screws from the plate that held the oven rack in place and gently pulled it out far enough to remove the ends of the element from the electrical current wires, finished removing the burnt out element and replaced it with the new one from Partselect by repacing the new element ends on the electrical current wires and screwed it into place and replaced the racks, turned on the power and baked my pie. I am a 71 year old widow who was able to accomplish this with the good instructions provided by Partselect, this was the first time I have ever tried to do anything like this on my own.
